The incident was adjourned under a plea by one of the convicts “Radheshyam Bhagwandas Shah” who applied for remission under the ‘1992 remission policy‘ on May 13. The convict was later released by mercy under the inspection of the Gujrat government. He pled to guilty after being in jail for 15 years since January 2008.

All 11 convicts were sentenced to life imprisonment in the special CBI court in Mumbai. They were later released under the Gujrat Government’s remission policy, suspecting the convicts have served 15 years of imprisonment.

Bilkis was disgusted over the approval saying the decision was made with “non-application of mind.” She further said that the language of the law was unambiguous and the remission rule should consider the convict’s appeal with more perspicacity.
